Error in the date and time for the outloook calender

Hi guys,

I am trying to send around 50 mail for meeting request from Outlook. Please check the excel range for the data and time.

But every time I get the error for the DateTime.I tried many formulas for the start and time and its always showing some error.
Can someone please help to write the correct formula in the start and end time. Which is will combine two cells. Date and time.

Please check the screenshot for the excel range and also for the error message in the path.

Please check the attached image and start time should be row 4 and row 5,and end time should be row 6 to row 7


Hi @Vijayakumar_Arumugam,
Earlier when you had shared the screenshot date format was different MM/dd/yyyy and in the latest screenshot it is dd/MM/yyyy.
Which needs to be considered and could you please share the output of row(4).ToString and row(5).ToString either in mesaage box or log message

@ Vijayakumar_Arumugam
You have to convert row 4 and row 5 separately for ex.

convert.ToDateTime(row(0).ToString).ToDateString :- Date Column
convert.ToDateTime(row(1).ToString).ToShortTimeString :- TimeColumn

and concatenate result:
convert.ToDateTime(row(0).ToString).ToShortDateString +" "+convert.ToDateTime(row(1).ToString).ToShortTimeString

Hi @Lakshay_Verma,

I try with the expression you wrote here .

I am getting another error.


Hi @Vijayakumar_Arumugam,

Use Preserveformat while reading data

Convert.ToDateTime(row(4).ToString,System.Globalization.CultureInfo.GetCultureInfo(“hi-IN”).DateTimeFormat) for Date
Convert.ToDateTime(row(5).ToString For time

Because this is string, your argument need date and time use below code

Cdate(convert.ToDateTime(row(4).ToString).ToShortDateString +" "+convert.ToDateTime(row(5).ToString).ToShortTimeString)

Also you need to make sure below settings

Hi @Lakshay_Verma and @Arpit_Kesharwani,

I tried both solutions but it didn’t work.

Thi sis the error message I got.

I also attachment my workflow and excel file:i also tried to combine date and time in the excel file .Please check the excel file.

TEXT MAIL.xlsx (13.4 KB) Main.xaml (7.4 KB)


Please use this as argument

cdate(DateTime.ParseExact(row(4).ToString,“dd/MM/yyyy”,system.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture).ToShortDateString+" “+cdate(row(5).ToString).ToShortTimeString)
cdate(DateTime.ParseExact(row(7).ToString,“dd/MM/yyyy”,system.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture).ToShortDateString+” "+cdate(row(8).ToString).ToShortTimeString)
